Need some advice- I am 50 yrs. old, 5'8", 195lbs. I would consider myself a firm Intermediate skier. I ski mainly in PA/WV, but take yearly trips to NY and VT. I begrudgingly ski moguls with my much more advanced 19 yr. old son, enjoy wider tree runs, and attack the groomers. Most of the time, especially here in Western PA, we are dealing with ice and crud. I will ski most diamonds, although sometimes with trepidation. I am skiing on rather old freestyle skis which do not want to bite into the ice. I was considering the Volkl AC 7.4, Blizzard Magnum 7.6 or K2 Rictors. I am skiing 167-170, as I don't like much longer than that in the trees (tried skiing trees on 197s and spent more time in the trees than skiing them *LOL*) Most of these skis are on ebay for around $150-$200.
My son just got a new pair of K2 Moto GS, and looks like a whole different skier on the ice...
Any advice or opinions would be more than welcome!
